Painting the Trails of Lunar Landers
Gestern ging ‘ne Pinball-Painting-Maschine rum, die war mir eine Spur (ha!) zu random. Aber das hier find’ ich gut: Lunar Trails von Seb Lee-Delisle malt die Wege, die man auf beim Arcade-Klassiker Lunar Lander hinterlässt, mit einem Roboter auf ‘ne Leinwand. Toll!
Lunar Trails is an interactive installation, first commissioned by the Dublin Science Gallery for their GAME exhibition, running from November 2012 to the end of January 2013. It features a full size arcade cabinet running the vintage 1979 game Lunar Lander. As you play the game, the path that you take is rendered on the wall with a large hanging drawing robot.
The trails build up to produce artworks that are solely created by the game players, and is a reflection of all their individual journeys to the surface of the moon.
